About the object

An interesting bronze ring with a longitudinally placed and pierced steatite scarab. The base of the scarab features a human figure and a gazelle depiction. Hyksos were a group of people from Western Asia that took over the eastern Nile Delta ending the 13th Dynasty and initiating the Second Intermediate Period. The Hyksos brought several technical improvements to Egypt, as well as cultural infusions. The changes introduced include new techniques of bronze working and pottery, new breeds of animals, and new crops. In warfare, they introduced the horse and chariot, the composite bow, improved battle axes, and advanced fortification techniques.
